29 Dec 2008, 19:37 by thephillymanI made a ton of mix tapes back in the day and most followed the same format. Side A had the rock and pop jams and Side B was for the slow stuff. Anyway, as I was thinking of new stuff to blip on blip.fm, I though it would be fun to resurrect the concept to highlight music I was listening to in a particular year. So here's the first volume from 1989.
- Roxette - The Look
- Tears for Fears - Sowing The Seeds Of Love
- Real Life - Send Me an Angel
- The Cult - Fire Woman
- New Order - Round and Round
- The Smithereens - A Girl Like You
- Neneh Cherry - Buffalo Stance
- Beastie Boys - Hey Ladies
- Depeche Mode - Personal Jesus
- Martika - Toy Soldiers
- Simply Red - If You Don't Know Me by Now
- U2 - All I Want Is You
- New Edition - Can You Stand The Rain
- Bobby Brown - Rock Wit'cha
- Debbie Gibson - Lost in Your Eyes
- Jeff Healey Band - Angel Eyes
- The Bangles - Eternal Flame
- Tesla - Love Song
- Roxette - The Look

19 Mar 2008, 14:00 by LekkimOut of boredom and an old fascination of finding similarities in rock and pop songs I have created the following list of tunes made by artists, who should have their asses trown in jail by the Music Police for stealing from other musicians.
Listed after severity of the case:
Ice Ice Baby recorded in 1989 should be put in jail for ripping off Under Pressure from 1982.
Listen to the part from 0:13 here and then at the beginning of this track and judge for yourselfDisco Tango recorded in 1979 should be put in jail for ripping off Paint It Black from 1966.
Listen to the part from 0:20 here and then at 0:11 on this track and judge for yourselfUnderneath Your Clothes recorded in 2001 should be put in jail for ripping off Eternal Flame from 1988.
Listen to the part from 0:36 here and then at 0:12 on this track and judge for yourselfDani California recorded in 2006 should be put in jail for ripping off Mary Jane's Last Dance from 1994.

16 Nov 2006, 00:34 by ushkarevi just randomly came across a song in my collection - Eternal Flame. its funny how some songs bring up really vivid memories from the past...
...i remember sitting with my school mates around a cooking fire in what felt like the middle of nowhere in tanzania - it was a school charity expedition. we were listening to the only station that we could pick up on our wind-up radio and chatting away about how best to look busy tomorrow instead of helping dig the new pit latrine. then this song came on... and we didnt stop singing it till we were back in england and had 'real' music to listen to.
i dont even like the bangles much, but this song has stuck in my head!
